Habitat and Range
The Siberian Tiger lives in the southeast region of Russia, specifically the snowy areas where it can have access to water, which sustains it through the cold and dry winters.

The Siberian Tigers defense mechanisms are its sharp claws, long powerful teeth and intimidating roar. While it does not need camouflage to avoid predators, it uses it to sneak up on prey.
The tiger's earliest found remains are about
2 million years old and were discovered in China, these remains suggest that the tiger's ancestor is the Saber Tooth
(35 million years ago) and they evolved into a sub species 25 million years ago
The Siberian tiger is a Heterotroph because it is a consumer in the food chain.
The Siberian tiger is the largest feline in the world. Its average size is about 11 feet. Siberian tigers are distinguished by the stripes in their fur. They weigh up to 700 lbs. Long think fur and fat on their belly allow them to live in the winter.
"They stalk their prey, which includes elk, boar, bears, and deer, until they are close enough to pounce. When successful, they drag their kill to a secluded area before devouring the meat. Tigers also hunt smaller animals like rabbits, pikas, and fish."(Animal Fact Guide)

Tigers need to hunt often, and are usually unsuccessful on their hunts. They can eat up to 60 lbs, but generally eat only 20 lbs in at one time.
The tigers litter size is 2-6 cubs, the mother will care for them alone after a gestation period of 3 to 3.5 moths. Mother tigers only give birth once every two years because she take care of her young for two years. While the babies are still very young she leaves them in the den while she hunts. Then at 3 months they can leave the den and go on hunts with the mother. At 18 months they will hunt on their own but will not leave the den. At 2 years they will leave the den and start their own life.
They can weigh up to 700 lbs.
Males and females both mark their territory with urine ad by scratching trees. Males only protect their territory against other males, concentrating on finding and making a territory close to female territory or an area with an abundance of food.
They are solitary and shun other male tigers. They sometimes allowing both genders to pass through their territory but are more tolerant with females and cubs.
They wander far while creating territories.
While they are young, they establish territories near their mothers.
They are somewhat smaller than males.
Their coloration is lighter.
Females are between 240-275 centimeters long.
Tigers are poached for their fur and body parts, which are used in the oriental medicine market or sold as exotic souvenirs. Their fur is used in making coats, hats, blankets, etc..
It is super illegal to poach the tigers,this is

because they are a endangered species.
